Overview

The most northern Dead Sea beach on the western (Israeli) side, Just 25 minutes drive from Jerusalem. Simple and very accommodating beach; an open cafe with special water-cooling fans enables a 360° view over the Judean and the Jordanian desert and the Dead Sea. The shore is large and allows shaded spots alongside sunbathing chairs. Another snack bar is located next to shore. Health treatments are available.

It s a funny experience but too crowded with the many buses bringing tons of tourists that give the impression of a communal bath. Still, if you re passing by maybe worth a 1 hour stop. The entrance fee is 57 NIS.More

Filled with lots of international. The weather can easily get to 42degrees so be prepared. Food and alcohol can be expensive so bring your own. Make sure to swim on your back only - front ways will sting your eyes.
